Kamuzu Banda family takes 32 lawmakers to Chilima

Deputy Speaker Kazombo leading MCP-UTM electoral alliance for fresh elections

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-About 32 Members of Parliament (MPs) from Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and independent benches are reportedly met Malawi’s Vice President Saulosi Chilima asking him to lead an opposition alliance in a fresh presidential poll ordered by the constitutional Court.

The lawmakers were led by Deputy Speaker Madalitso Kazombo and Kasungu South East MP Khumbidze Kandodo over the weekend.

“Yes its true they met. They asked for an audience and asked him to lead an alliance against the DPP. The MPs say they dont think Dr Lazuras Chakwera can win votes across the country unlike Chilima” said a source who said the meeting lasted two hours.

The MPs mainly from Kasungu, Dowa, Salima, Northern Region, Mchinji and Dedza say they believe SKC has better chance to defeat the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

This new twist now escalates the divisions in the main opposition as most of its senior officials from its Central Region base have already dumped party vice President Sidik Mia openly, a position they are advocating to give to Chakwera in an electoral alliance.

Others are pointing fingures at businessman Simbi who has been working with former MP Rhyno Chiphiko to bring Chilima to lead the MCP.

However insiders from Chakweras base claim founding president Kamuzu Bandas family which includes Kazombo, Khumbize Kandodo and former Minister Ken Kandodo are working to oust Chakwera and return presidency to Kasungu.

Kazombo over the weekend told the rally that MCP needs to partner with UTM at all cost to ouster DPP.

Chakwera and Mia are yet to make statement on the matter.
